Can an Orthodontist Perform Propel or Acceledent Procedures?

At Gladwell Orthodontics, Dr. Jason Gladwell and his team are dedicated to providing patients with cutting-edge technologies that will allow them to achieve exceptional orthodontic results. That’s why, our Raleigh area office offers accelerated orthodontic treatments that can reduce the amount of time it takes you to achieve the straight teeth and attractive smile you’ve been dreaming of.

The Propel System

One of the most effective accelerated orthodontic treatments is called The Propel system. This system stimulates bone remodeling which gives your teeth the opportunity to move faster into their ideal position. It works by creating perforations to make your braces more efficient.


Acceledent is a device that resembles the handle of an electric toothbrush and features an attached mouthguard. It vibrates in order to increase blood flow and help move teeth. If you opt for this accelerated treatment, you will need to wear Acceledent’s mouthguard for 20 minutes of day. According to clinical trials, this device can straighten teeth up to 50% faster while reducing levels of pain and discomfort up to 71%.

For decreased orthodontic treatment time, increased comfort, shorter appointment intervals, less side effects, and predictable results, accelerated orthodontics treatments such as the Propel system or Acceledent are the way to go.
